Sandwich Kick

by HEAB on October 14, 2011

Something has shifted…I’m not really sure when or why or how, but it hit me the other day when I decided to eat lunch. I made a sandwich and snapped a photo.


Peanut butter, diced chicken breast, and marmite on sprouted grain toast. Weird? Probably, but my odd combos is not what this post is about. It’s about just eating and not putting much thought into it. Dare I say, I feel almost normal? Ever since I lost weight, food and I have had a weird relationship, but come on, don’t most food bloggers have a weird relationship with food? I mean we take photos of what we eat and post it for the world to see. That’s just odd. Anyway, a couple of years ago, this is what a typical lunch looked like…


The above is a random photo from October 2009. Gosh, I’m not even sure what it was…some kind of broccoli salad with shrimp and roasted spiralized sweet potatoes? Sounds pretty good actually, and it’s not that I wouldn’t eat something like this now, but sandwiches are just so much easier. Used to freak out if my meals weren’t 75% vegetables. Used to plan out lunch and dinner before breakfast even ended. Used to eat 3 meals a day and 1 snack, nothing more, nothing less. The other day, it was a little after 12-noon. I’d just finished feeding Summer and thought, hmm, I’m hungry, guess I’ll eat something myself. So, I made some toast, decided peanut butter and Marmite is always a good combo and then added Summer’s leftover chicken. Afterwards, I was still hungry and snacked on some Twin Cakes Bakery bites and then made a smoothie about an hour later. My days are now filled with all sorts of things. Meals just kind of happen when they happen and are usually thrown together at the last minute…and I like it that way.
